In the very begining the plan was to make a smooth and kinda sweet stout, but i did not know where I could buy lactose and put that plan aside. Then, I decided I would make a Chocolat Stout, but if you live in Brasil, that's because god wanted you to do things in hardcore style, hence there was no Chocolat Malt here in my city. hehe In this way, I kind created my own recipe tasting the malts and with what I remembered, and end up with this :
2,5 Kg Pilsen agromalte
0,3 Kg Carafa Weyermann
0,2 Kg München Weyermann
(mashing for 90mins at 65 °C)
10 g Tradition hops
5 g Cascade (last 15 minutes)
(boiled for 90mins)
That was my second all grain, so it is possible that my combination is not that good =P And perhaps not even a Stout.
But here is the deal, I tasted the wort and it has a very present taste of roasted coffee, which is fine, but not so interesting from my point of view.
I thought about adding some boiled cocoa powder, would that be fine?
And after I put the yeast I realized I had oats too. Is that possible to do a second mashing with only oats and add it to the primary hoping to get an Oatmeal Stout?
And do you have any tips about what I should add to this beer to make it more interesting and less boring and simple?
Thanks in advance.
